A vision in white! Cate Blanchett flaunts her willowy frame in stunning one shouldered form-fitting gown for Windsor Castle gala
It was a glamorous black tie event.
And while many of the celebrity guests slipped into glitzy, glimmering gowns, Cate Blanchett opted for simple elegance when she arrived at Windsor Castle for a charity dinner hosted by the Duke of Cambridge on Tuesday.
Rubbing shoulders with the likes of Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss and Emma Watson, as well as fellow Australian Margot Robbie, the understated Blue Jasmine actress, 44, didn’t fail to impress in an ethereal, powder white gown.

Clinging to her willowy figure, the floor-length frock featured a dramatic one shoulder detail with layers of delicate fabric draped over her bust and shoulder to break up the simplicity of the dress.
Leaving her collar unadorned, the mother-of-three added sparkle to her elegant ensemble with a pair of chandelier style crystal earrings and clutched a slimline cream purse.
Prince William threw open the doors of the castle for the event, hosted to celebrate the work of The Royal Marsden Hospital of which he is president.
But while a host of celebrities including Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch, actress Helena Bonham Carter, photographer Mario Testino and Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael were in attendance, the Duchess of Cambridge was notably absent.

Seated next to celebrated designer Ralph Lauren, who was a sponsor of the glittering event, Cate enjoyed a lavish dinner as the A-list guests took their places at two long rows of tables.

Fellow Australian actress Margot Robbie opted for a more dramatic look for the occasion, slipping into a backless silver gown and sporting a sultry smoky eye.
